Lieutenants Paris, Torres, and Durst are imprisoned by the Vidiians. In an attempt to develop a cure for the phage, a Vidiian doctor splits the bi-racial Torres into two people (one Klingon and one Human) because he believes Klingons are immune to the Phage. The two Torreses escape the prison compound, but the Klingon Torres is fatally injured protecting the Human Torres while the Human Torres cracks the Vidiiam computer to escape. Before her death, the Klingon Torres tells her Human half that showing courage makes her death honorable. The Doctor tells the Human Torres, who has contracted the Phage, that she will not survive unless he re-integrates her Klingon DNA. Written by Meribor

When the guards come to take Peter Durst into questioning, Tom Paris tries to stop them claiming to be the superior officer. Technically Peter Durst was the higher ranking officer as a Full Lieutenant, whereas Tom Paris is only a Lieutenant junior grade. See more »

Roxanne Dawson shows her acting chops
19 September 2017 | by generic230-1See all my reviews

Star Trek Voyager is my favorite of the 2nd generation Star Trek series precisely because of episodes like this. The women in Voyager have serious, raw, powerful acting chops. I have always loved watching Jeri Ryan and Kate Mulgrew, whose portrayals of their characters have always drawn me fully into the show, but until I saw this episode I never understood the range and power of Roxanne Dawson's talent. I can't believe I got to watch a show with 3 such powerful, complex women. Lucky lucky me.
